The issue of Information Security in the Energy Market was prepared by epdk on 12.02.2014 and published in the Official Gazette on 02.11.2013 and numbered 28809, which came into force, in the Draft Regulation on Amendments to the Regulation on Electricity Market,
Corporate information systems of companies operating in the Electricity Market in articles 30,31,32 and 33 of the current regulation; industrial control and information security procedures, information security standards are manufactured in accordance with the Turkish Accreditation Authority accredited certification authority has been stated to be documented.
In addition to the security of personal data, electricity transmission and distribution have many unique features and there are too many variable parameters in the system; in particular, it is very important to control the security of the entire IT system against attacks from inside and outside.
In addition to all operations to be used as information system, software and hardware; ensure that the system is fully integrated. In this context, instead of only applications that work under names such as Customer Information System or Subscriber Management System; In addition to the Subscriber System, integrated operation of all geographic information system, scada, material management, human resources and financial affairs systems should be provided,
Electricity bills, which are organized by consumption values obtained from OSOS (Automatic Meter Reading System), should be able to be delivered to consumers by e-invoice and SMS by companies that have received e-invoice authorization.
Software Used in Electricity Distribution
By having the Geographic Information System linked to the project and work order of a Warehouse output bond in Material Management with the Subscriber Information System; On the one hand, material management monitoring is carried out, on the other hand network information and disassembly material information can be monitored very easily up to date.
In the electricity distribution sector, the security within the system can be achieved by intensive variable parameters and by doing function tests of the distribution automation software used. Otherwise, some applications may have unintended consequences within the framework of authorizations or because of system failures.
Because the areas where companies operating in the Electricity Market serve are geographically very large; As well as the management and control of distributed structures in information systems, real-time system backup will be required in different physical environments in order to take precautions against natural disasters, which are called disaster scenarios, as well as protection from external threats.
As with the OSOS minimum specification prepared and published by EPDK earlier, it is important for the sector to set at least one minimum standard.
